Howdy hackers!

The sudo room mesh networking group has gotten to the point where we are
nearly ready to launch a free community wireless network in the east bay!
Take a look at our map <http://meshmap.sudoroom.org> to see where we are.

We will be launching the first part of the network with 100+ wifi nodes,
and we need your help to raise the money! Even a single dollar helps! We
are 68% of the way to our goal:

You can also donate bitcoins using the following wallet address:

Or gittip: https://www.gittip.com/sudomesh/

Even if you can't contribute monetarily, please consider forwarding this to
your friends / social networks of choice.

We will provide a free wireless network controlled and maintained by the
local community. The network will be used it to provide both local
community services, post-disaster backup connectivity and free internet
connectivity focusing on the less connected communities.

We are also looking for new members and allies. What you can do to help:

*Have you been involved with a mesh project before? We'd love to hear from
you! Join our mailing list <http://lists.sudoroom.org/listinfo/mesh> or hop

*Do you want to help with community outreach? We want to engage the local
communities and need your help to reach more people.

*Can you help with design of fliers or websites?

We meet every Thursday evening at 8:30 pm at sudo room <https://sudoroomorg>,
and everyone is welcome to join! We take notes at
